Takamizawa Reprints - Handsome reprint by the venerable Takamizawa publisher. Takamizawa was known as one of the finest reprint publishers of the 20th century, and produced some of the highest quality ukiyo-e woodblock reprints of all time. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.
Ochie of the Koiseya at Kobikicho, Shin-yashiki - Wonderful, classic Utamaro head and shoulders portrait of the famous young beauty Ochie reading a woodblock print book. She smiles happily as she examines the pictures, her open lips revealing tiny even teeth. A lovely design with fine line work in the hair and a subtle distressed mica background.
